Today is a date to remember for the life spam of our project. Cooltourspain decided to launch a new experience where to help each other and contribute to people’s enrichment. We decided to offer the opportunity of sharing our knowledge on graffiti with others. The street art foundation in Madrid is the place where street art lovers (artists, guides, educators) and different groups meet to solve the problems related to social inclusion.
The inclusive activities we launched will create an impact on people’s lifes and the interaction that exists between them and the contemporary/modern art. An opppotunity to let citizens express their feelings through urban art.
What does our street art foundation in Madrid do?
Our group of graffiti leaders offer the opportunity to Down syndrome associations to participate in Cooltourspain’s street art tours in Madrid. We collaborate with local associations and different NGO’s that work towards inclusion. Not only the participants will be able to learn about the history and the techniques used by urban artists but to paint during the street art workshops that could be developed at their occupational centers. Wouldn’t you say that this experience allow our guests to broaden their cultural knowledge about art?
The first street art foundation in Madrid organizes several activities which help its guests develop new ways of thinking and expression through graffiti. It will serve as the channel for a new integration way in the local communities. Where are all the same human beings.
When did the street art foundation in Madrid start its activities?
The social project leaded by Javier Garcia organized its first free guided visit last 24th November 2018. It was a complete success and Cooltourspain wishes to organize more experiences of this kind in the near future. The activity counted with the collaboration of several volunteers that unanimously shared their time with our guests on a Saturday morning & afternoon.
Can I collaborate with the street art foundation in Madrid? How could I do it?
Of course you can! We love to receive the help of urban art lovers of all ages! Your time is gold for our groups! You will share your passion on the hidden street art tours in Madrid by co-guiding the walking visits with one of us. Please note that no experience is required! If you are interested in volunteering or collaborating, send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and one assistant will be in touch with you shortly!
Artists who don’t have enough time to share with others but are still interested in helping our street art foundation in Madrid may donate their spray cans or any other materials (stencils, markers…) that could be used at the graffiti workshops that we develop.
Why is important to have a street art foundation in Madrid?
It does harm our industry when individuals spray paint without the permission of local authorities or damage public urban infraestructures. We read on the newspapers that graffiti writers attacked Madrid and Barcelona’s metro a while ago but it is also important to talk about the social projects developed by our street art foundation in Madrid.
Our group of graffiti writers collaborate with local associations in order to promote social inclusion, their emotional health’s development and their personal strenghts.
